Er, I mean, the impaler. So anyway.
Here's a situation which came up in a game recently, and I was dum enough not to have taken a screenshot while I was playing. So I had to recreate the situation, but my test account doesn't have DE because I'm CHEAP. So let's pretend.
Right then. Wraith dearest has less than 1350 HP (read: can be KOed by a scrolled Impala in one hit) and is fully fed, and so deals 600 damage per hit. The imp has 1050HP (read: can be KOed by the wraith in 3 hits + 1 soulbomb). Your opponent MAY have a soulbomb, but no priestesses. WHAT DO YOU DO?
Ok, so here's what I did.
I basically bet that my opponent didn't have a soulbomb. If he did, though, bomb + whack + whack + whack + nom and.. I'm in a very very sorry situation. What was the better solution, though?
After an hour or so of praying for no soulbombs, I realised I screwed up and could have avoided all that by following my own advice and THINKING about how imps function. Why let the wraith bash on you once he's up and running again? You have range, use it! So now, we've got bomb + MOVE + whack + whack + whack. Now my imp is KOed, but see that soulbomb there? That means I get to rez and OFF THAT GUY. Whew.
As it turns out in the game, he didn't have a soulbomb in hand (although he did have one in his deck) and so I scraped another win. Go me, but I should probably stop gambling and start thinking about where I park my Impala (yeah you knew this was coming).
